Today, I’m giving thanks for cookies. Chocolate chip cookies to be specific. It has been a pretty busy day around and I just hadn’t taken time to be thankful for anything. As I scrounged around for a little snack, I happened upon a box of cookies that I bought for the kids yesterday. One or two is a perfect way to satisfy that sweet tooth.
It also dawned on me that, for all that I have been thankful for so far this month, I haven’t mentioned food at all. This is a food photography blog, after all!
So, I snapped a quick picture.
The cookie is a pretty simple concept, isn’t it? Flour, butter, sugar, and eggs. Add some flavoring and a few other things. Mix it all up and spoon onto a sheet pan. Bake for 10 minutes, let cool, and eat. You can grab one on the go or sit with a tall glass of milk and savor it. Baking them can lead to great moments with your kids and kids of all ages love a good cookie. Really, what’s not to be thankful for?
Why are you giving thanks for cookies? Does a great cookie evoke memories or just taste really good? Leave me a comment and share your story. Make sure you follow along and see what else I’m giving thanks for.
